Dacia and Ford are running their engines to the maximum in this last quarter to recover the months lost during the pandemic.

Dacia and Ford are the only car manufacturers that make cars in our country. The pandemic has turned their plans upside down, as is the case with larger ones worldwide, but the recovery is being forced at the end of the year. October, for example, was a good one for both producers.

They produced a total of over 50,000 cars. I’m not at last year’s level, but it’s well above the monthly average of 2020 – a year and so atypical. Both plants stopped production at the beginning of the pandemic and sent their employees into technical unemployment until things calmed down.

Dacia and Ford force recovery

ACAROM data show that, in October, the two car factories in Romania had a cumulative production of over 51,000 cars, slightly lower than in October 2019, but well above the monthly average of 2020, a completely unusual year. So far, Dacia has produced about 212,000 cars this year, and Ford, almost 145,000.

In total, 51,418 cars were produced in Romania, a decrease of 3% compared to the similar period of 2019, respectively 53,119 units. Of these, 29,676 units were produced at the DACIA plant in Mioveni and 21,742 were produced by the FORD plant in Craiova. For the first 10 months of 2020, the total production of cars in Romania amounted to 356,491 units, down 12.61% compared to the similar period of 2019, respectively 407,931 units.

By models, car production in the first ten months of 2020 is as follows:

  • DACIA Duster – 151,120 units
  • FORD EcoSport & Puma – 144,846 units
  • DACIA Logan – 28,975 units
  • DACIA Sandero – 22,987 units
  • DACIA Logan MCV – 8,563 units
